We've planted several dozen (50ish) citrus, exotic fruit and avocado trees on our property, and while many of them are flourishing and doing well, unfortunately we keep losing trees to careless weedwackers. Recently we've lost a canepa, tangerine, kumquat and avocado in the battle that is maintaining our property. No bueno!! We made another trip out to the

I was taking a little stroll around the property and happen to walk by the pineapple plants we planted, and...well, LOOK!! Hay un pina!! Yay! I'm so excited about this!

I never thought I'd see the day, but the master bathroom is done! The master bathroom jacuzzi tub & vanities: The master bathroom "His" side: The master bathroom "Hers" side: We bought the jacuzzi tub well over a year ago and have proceeded to move it around our little construction mess for this long, so it's nice to
